station (IOS) and are referenced at mean sea level. The indications displayed on the cockpit instruments, and received
by the computer, are pressure altitude, and temperature based upon the application of standard lapse (20C/1000 feet).
Sling loads: Six external sling loads can be selected:
High-density non-aero load - 18,000 pounds, 12-foot sling (M-198).
Drogued aero load - 11,015-pound disabled helicopter, 20-foot sling (AH-64).
Three light loads - 2 fuel bladders (7,008 pounds per load), 14-foot sling.
Tandem load - 20,000-pound military van (forward and aft hooks), 16-foot (forward), 14-foot (aft).
Motion cues: A six-degree-of-freedom motion base provides pitch, roll, yaw, heave, longitudinal, and lateral
motion cues. Simulation is further enhanced by a seat vibration system that provides continuous and periodic
oscillations and vibrations that are experienced during normal and emergency flight conditions. Motion and vibration
can be both selected or deselected at the IOS console.
Environmental sound cues: Environmental sound cues at nine levels of loudness can be selected and varied
at the IOS console.
Seat positions: The simulator has seat positions for a pilot and copilot in the cockpit and for an instructor and
observer in the instructor area.
Special capabilities: The simulator has the following special capabilities:
It can freeze simulator action at any instant.
It can initiate a training program at any one of ten predefined locations within the gaming area (five in
each of the instrument and tactical gaming areas).
It can reset to an initialization point that has been modified.
Reset is identical to initialization. They are both
indicated by blinking of the FREEZE indicator.
It can override an impending aircraft crash.
It can record dynamically and play back up to the previous 5 minutes of a current flight.
It can insert up to 10 simultaneous malfunctions.
It can demonstrate prerecorded maneuvers.
It can monitor program progress and trainee performance.
